Host Robert Siegel speaks to former Attica State Prison guard G. B. Smith and former inmate Frank Smith. During the 1971 revolt at the upstate New York prison, G. B. Smith was held hostage, while Frank Smith was a negotiator for the inmates. Both are featured in a new documentary Ghosts of Attica which debuts this Sunday, on Court TV.
